‘LANDSCAPES’

A solo exhibition by Sarah Watson

6.10.2021 – 30.10.2021

Sarah Watson explores the beauty and dynamism of the natural landscape, travelling to the most stunning and diverse areas of the UK and beyond to paint. She is particularly in thrall to the constantly changing colours and endless drama in the skies as the seasons change. The landscape itself is sometimes almost completely abstracted but the form is still held. She works almost exclusively en plein air, channelling her immediate emotional response to the surrounding countryside into expressive marks and colour.

In this exhibition, Sarah brings us exclusively work painted over the Summer months this year. Having been finally set free to roam properly and paint en plein air for the first time since the start of last year, she has more than made up for it. Her travels bring us paintings of the coastal drama of the Gower Peninsula, the brooding beauty of North Yorkshire, the rolling hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds and the majesty of the western Lake District.

She has exhibited in four one woman shows across the UK, and is represented by Gallery6 in Newark. She featured on the Sky Arts television show Landscape Artist Of The Year in2016, and was accepted for membership of the exclusive Lincolnshire Artists’ Society in 2019.

Born in Oakham, Rutland, in 1972, Sarah graduated from De Montfort University with a First-Class degree in Combined Arts in 1994, specializing in Abstract Painting. After 15 years working in the music industry, she settled in Lincolnshire to devote her time entirely to painting.
